Hello
Thanks for query .You have been diagnosed to have infection of Epididymis and Testis(Epididymo-Orchitis) and have been taking medications prescribed by your family Physician .However you are not getting desired relief from symptoms

This could be due to either the organisms may not be sensitive to antibiotics that you have been prescribed or may be due to inadequate dose of the medications..

You need to do your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefixime along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin and anti inflammatory medicine like Diclofenac twice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Please note that Epididymo -Orchitis takes long time to get cured hence you will need to take medications for 3-4 weeks .

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.
